3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 My goodness! My Guinness. A lot can be - and has been - said about this beer. Its iconic status is basically unparalleled in the beer world - and for good reason. Guinness is simply wonderful. The thick, creamy head; the dark stout below...I can’t think of another beer so recognizable. People have different opinions about Guinness and its taste. I usually detect hints of coffee and chocolate. I always detect hints of complete deliciousness. Some people disagree with me, and they’re just stupid. I lived in Dublin for five months, so I have more than a special place for Guinness in my heart. And Guinness really is good for you. A 12oz serving has 9.9 carbs and 110 calories, which is way better than most beers of this caliber. I realize that this entry is a bit rambling and disjointed; I’ll fix it up later. I just wanted to get a rating up here.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, Nitro-type. 4.1%ABV. Almost black with a medium beige head. Aroma is mostly burned malt, with some coffee notes. Mellow mouthfeel, quite thin and with a flavor of burned malt and coffee. Dry, bitter finish, but not the typical hop-bitterness. (060327)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black with creamy white head, Fabolous looks... however thin palate (watery) . Roasted notes - coffee mainly. Drinkable but too watery for my taste. OK, sometimes drink it at the local Irish pub!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served on tap at the Clermont Arms, Blackrock, Co Louth, Eire into a Guinness pint glass (Dec ’11).
Dark black with a finger and a bit of white head, appears a dark brown if held to the light.
Very little aroma from this stout, slight roasted malt and very faint sweet smelling of perhaps toffee.
Maintains head very well throughout drinking and lacing also prevelant until the end.
No real tastes that jump out and grab you, just a very easy drinking stout with great smooth mouthfeel, slightly bitter aftertaste and perhaps very very mild hints of chocolate/toffee, more malt/iron in flavour.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2004 Tap
Perfect tanned creamy head and ebony colour. Coffee aroma. Taste is coffee aroma and roasted, even smoked malt filtered through cream head. Finishing very long with bitter and roasted mouthfeel. (7/5/9/5/18 4.4)
Perfect Guinness outlook - benchmark for others. Quite weak chocolate aroma. Smooth, chocolaty, roasted and bitter, lacks a bit fullness of tapped version. (6/5/7/4/16 3.8)
Looks good. Aroma slightly skunked. Taste balanced roasted with hoppy finish. (4/5/6/3/13 3.1)
